News that Kesha is suing super-producer Dr. Luke for a decade of alleged sexual, physical and emotional abuse shocked the internet this morning (October 14). He immediately counter-sued, claiming that his former protege is extorting him to get out of a legally-binding record deal. A court of law will soon determine the facts but fans have already jumped to K$’s defense online.
Given their already complicated relationship with Lukasz Gottwald (devotees started a campaign to “free” the pop diva from her contract late last year), Animals did not hold back their outrage over these latest allegations. They were shocked, appalled and genuinely concerned for Kesha’s well-being. See what Twitter had to say about the disturbing situation after the jump.

Kesha is one of the strongest people out there; the general hate, abuse from Luke (sexually, physically and verbally), no creative control!

Why do people think Kesha is lying about this, like these are very serious accusations & If she was lying her whole career would be at stake
